As a Puerto Rican male the team name "The Jets" is both threatening and offensive to me, I hereby suggest we change the team name to "The Sharks".

Thank you for your consideration.

If the Jets were forced to change their name for whatever reason, what are some New York type nicknames that would fit?  

I would 1000% support changing “Jets” to “Sharks.”

Native Americans have called it offensive for much longer than the media. Not everything can/needs to be attributed to “because if the media”.

That’s why I asked. And it’s actually very unfortunate that the American media cannot be trusted no matter what your beliefs. But that brings us to a harder to answer question, if people can find offense in something that’s not meant to be offensive are we to be offended ?

I mean really if you try hard enough you can find almost anything offensive that has some type of cultural appeal

Its been called flawed by numerous statistical experts, and the newspaper who did it obviously doesn’t even believe in its results.  Don’t know what to tell you.  

doesnt require a "statistical expert" to record a y or n from a phone call.

I guess this is the part I explain we don’t allow politics, someone post in before the lock, someone post politics and then the thread is locked. 


I really don’t see how it’s even a political issue. The term Redskin is essentially a racial slur which has no business being associated with an NFL franchise.

Maybe a better question would be what names would you submit for a naming contest?

Let's change it to the Washington Dogwhistles.

 

Love seeing people who have absolutely nothing to do with the group it impacts cry about it. Karens of the world unite and bitch about stuff they have no clue about. Fragile people. A group of minorities say using a slur to describe them as a team name is offensive and your response isn't "sh*t, sorry didn't mean it that way" you seriously lack empathy.

The thing is can you name teams after ethic groups. You have a good number of teams with a name referring to Native Americans. Our local high school is nicknamed the Braves. You have Boston Celtics. Hofstra years ago changed their nickname from Flying Dutchmen to Pride. In most cases you think it's a show of respect, that Indians were strong warriors, etc. I don't know if there is objection to names like Indians, Braves, etc. by NA organizations. But Redskins is over the line. That's pretty obvious.
